Fire Damages Apartment in FDL

A third floor apartment received significant fire and smoke
damage after a fire Saturday evening in Fond du Lac.

Firefighters were called to the Portland Square Apartments
just before 6 pm for a report of smoke on the second floor. After arriving,
fire crews were directed to the third floor where a fire was found in the
living room area inside an apartment. The fire was quickly put out, and was
confined to the single apartment. The fire caused minor damage to the adjacent units.

A news release says the person who lives in the apartment
was not home at the time of the fire. All other residents of the apartment building
were evacuated safely and no injuries were reported. The Red Cross was called
in to assist the displaced resident.

Firefighters were on scene for around two hours.
Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
